All about our founder.
The founder of EXO Design and Publishing received a creative upbringing by parents undertaking successful creative careers of their own. After gaining a Certificate in Introductory Art and Design in 1986 at the Seven Hills College of Art in Morningside, Queensland and later a Certificate in Sign-writing, and then taking on various design and production positions before returning to study at Queensland College of Art / Griffith University, this time completing an Associate Diploma of Arts in Commercial Art 1990 - 1991.
He once declined an offer to transfer to what some saw as the more prestigious graphic design degree course. Not being content with this idea, he proceeded with the commercial art course as he felt a strong desire to create art of a more commercial nature. He saw an opportunity to create a deeper and more immersive experience using the principles of art as a commercial endeavour.
After gaining extensive experience working with advertising agencies and publishing houses in Brisbane and Sydney, he completed a Certificate in Small Business Management and established EXO Design Studios in Sydney in the year 2000.
As our namesake suggests, EXO embodies a spirit, expressing the desire for our works to be born from outside of or beyond the bounds of design.
